The Victoria’s Secret Fashion show is the World Cup of modelling. Hopefuls from every corner of the globe vie for the opportunity to participate. The successful candidates display impressive athleticism (and spectacular hair). Though the uniforms look different, the abs underneath are equally chiselled, and millions tune in to see what they can do.
Every year, the lingerie brand hypes the upcoming show by announcing the new models – or ‘rookies,’ as they’re known – who will take on the runway. The 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has officially been cast, so gentlemen, let’s get to know the ladies who will strut their stuff with the Angels for the first time this December.
With two of Victoria’s most famous Angels out of commission this year – Candice Swanepoel and Behati Prinsloo – there are big wings to fill. The most famous face making her debut appearance is Bella Hadid, will join her older sister Gigi on the Paris catwalk. Other new additions include Alanna Arrington, Xiao Wen Ju, Georgia Fowler, Megan Williams, Herieth Paul, Luma Grothe, Zuri Tibby, and Lais Olivera.
Of course, plenty of familiar favourites will return for the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show as well. Elsa Hosk and Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge and Adriana Lima, Sara Sampaio and Martha Hunt, Kendall Jenner and Karlie Kloss, amongst others, are set to walk the runway and the pink carpet for another year.
Meet the 16 new women joining the Victoria’s Secret’s Class of 2016 above and look for the show to air on December 5.
